The Animas® Vibe® System
World-class pump performance
The Animas® Vibe® System provides real-time, intuitive blood glucose insights so patients can manage their highs and lows. This is because the Animas® Vibe® System integrates a precise insulin pump with advanced Dexcom G4® PLATINUM Sensor technology.
The Animas® Vibe® System, Now approved for children
The Animas® Vibe® System is the only integrated continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) system that is approved for children as young as 2 years of age.
Our Swiss-made motor offers basal rate increments as low as 0.025 U/hr (available range of 0.025 to 25 U/hr) and bolus increments as low as 0.05 U across the available range (0.05 to 35 U) to deliver precise increments of insulin to help the body’s changing needs.
CGM in full color
Compared to the snapshot in time of a blood glucose meter test result, CGM shows you what’s happening between meter tests—that way, you can observe levels and patterns that may not have been detected before. The Animas® Vibe® System shows you where your glucose is heading and how fast, revealing trends and rates of change at a glance.1
The Dexcom G4® PLATINUM Sensor's
introducer needle is tiny, round, and
flexible with one of the smallest
introducer needles on the market.2
Dexcom® has the only sensors approved
for up to 7 days of wear, which means
less frequent changes.
Measured by mean ARD (Absolute Relative
Difference), the industry’s standard for
determining CGM accuracy, the Dexcom
G4® PLATINUM Sensor weighs in at 13%
for exceptional performance and accuracy,
and reliable results.3
Animas® Vibe® Insulin Pump is waterproof at 12 feet (3.6 meters) for 24 hours. And because we're committed to your freedom, we've teamed our pump with the Dexcom G4® PLATINUM Sensor and Transmitter, water-resistant up to 8 feet (2.4 meters) for 24 hours.4
The Animas® Vibe® Insulin Pump has customizable alarms to indicate high and
low glucose levels. There is also a
built-in, non-adjustable hypoglycemia
safety alert set at 55 mg/dL for extra
peace of mind.
